The participation of Montenegrin Army in the ISAF mission was unnecessary and the country should take advantage of the NATO presence in Afghanistan’s new format and withdraw, said a member of the Parliamentary Committee for Defence and Security, Predrag Bulatovic. He believes that the participation of Montenegrin Army in the ISAF mission in Afghanistan was unnecessary and potentially risky.

After the Croatian Regional Organization for the Protection of Consumers (ROZP) warned that lemons from Turkey, treated with dangerous fungicide, have been on the market, the Phytosanitary Administration said that fruit on the market in Montenegro has passed all controls and there is no risk for consumers .
